Combines 250 thru 256

 

These cars were built by Jewett in 1917 and were reconfigured at various times.

250 was built by Jewett in 1917.  It had its seating reduced from 40 to 28 on July 28, 1925.

251 was built by Jewett in 1917,  It had its seating reduced from 40 to 24 on October 3, 1925, and it was converted to a Silverliner on June 19, 1953. It was acquired by Illinois Railway Museum in 1963.

252 was built by Jewett in 1917.  It had its seating reduced from 40 to 28 on May 25, 1927.

253 was built by Jewett in 1917.  It dropped seating to 28 on June 17, 1924, and was acquired by IRM in 1963.

254 was built by Jewett in 1917.  The seating was changed to 28 on August 26, 1955.

255 was built by Jewett in 1917.  It had all of the seats removed in the 1920s to provide a full length baggage car which ran in passenger trains. It was used for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to move equipment to Ravinia. On July 2, 1942, the 40 seats were replaced. Then on December 1, 1946, the seats were again removed. In addition to the Symphony, the car was used for sailors' baggage from Great Lakes.

256 was built by Jewett in 1917.  It seems to be the only one which retained its original configuration.
